Summary

He was a hard-working small business owner, an Army veteran, an attentive lover, and a doting father. But he was also something more, something sinister. A master of deception, he was a rapist, arsonist, and bank robber, and a new breed of serial killer, one who studied other killers to perfect his craft. He methodically buried kill-kits containing his tools of murder years before returning to reclaim them. Viewing the entire country as his hunting grounds, he often flew across the country to distant locations where he would rent a car and drive hundreds or even thousands of miles before randomly selecting his victims. Such were the methods and madness of serial killer Israel Keyes. Such were the demands of the Devil in the Darkness.

Struggled

I struggled to enjoy for the same reasons everyone else seems to have, the narrator detracted from the book because of his odd manner of narration. Strange and leaves you feeling disconnected from the book.

Good book spoiled by AWFUL narration

I have listened to over 100 audiobooks over the years and I’ve never found one that I had to stop listening to because of the narration...until now that is. I’m sorry but Kline’s sing-song style with pauses where they don’t belong detracts massively from an otherwise good book. He doesn’t sound like he’s read the book first and there is no emotion or passion in the delivery. I hate to write bad reviews but on this occasion I needed to share this. I managed two chapters but was put off from the first paragraph. Completed the book by reading a copy myself.
